Overview

Walton (U. of Michigan) and Smith (San Francisco State U.) examine how the acts and presence of Africans in the United States changed its history from the founding of the republic to taking the role of leadership in the acknowledgment and expansion of freedoms of all Americans. They describe the foundations of this influence in the limits of universal freedom, the tradition of political behaviorism in terms of political culture and socialization, coalitions, movements and interest groups, relations with legislative and executive institutions and the judiciary, and the impact of African Americans on domestic and foreign policy. They include primary documents, and period illustrations and photographs. In this edition the authors include analyses of reactions amongst African Americans to such issues as the Iraq war, same-sex marriage, and the 2004 elections.
